Joan eagles use updrafts to soar - but do not fly directly into a storm. I have a reference for you in the link.
I'm at the coast birding and taking pictures. I will share some of them with the group.
How's everyone doing today?

Steph, my son heard something on the radio this morning that sounds ... impossible. When a storm approaches most birds find shelter; however the eagle does not, it flies above the storm clouds. Is that true?

Very full-of-wonder photos on this site this week. It is pure fun to scroll through comments and watch videos and photos. Thanks everyone for making this a special day.

Lillie what a beautiful bird!

Thanks for posting the pic.

And you are right - only evolution can make that color.

Gorgeous! You bet!

Looks like it was designed by committee.  Maybe a group of the Moron Gods. Hehe.

Comment by Lillie on September 1, 2012 at 3:23pm

Received an email that said "Only god can make this color."  I say, "Only evolution can make this color."  This is a Gouldian Finch native to Australia.  Gorgeous.
